Execution is the key for CAT preparation
Aristotle, one of the famous Greek philosophers, once said, “For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” Similarly, to prepare well for the Common Admission Test (CAT), it is important to carry out proper execution.
There is no point in merely reading notes; it is important to practice Mock Questions.
According to Confucius, a Chinese philosopher, “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” Only by attempting challenging questions and stretching your limit can you understand a concept thoroughly.
Execution is the key to learning and definitely a key to CAT preparation. CAT is divided into three sections
